      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

I reached out to the MN DNR late last fall and they provided me the attached report.  The markings on it were already  there when I got it from them. They acknowledged it normally isn't released until spring of the following year.  It's not the full "2017 Harvest Report"...but at least it lets you think about what it took to successfully get a tag in the last lottery.  I would think the 2017 Harvest Report would get posted along with the 2018 Lottery going live in the next week.

Yep......2018 stuff is on the page.  One thing yet to be posted is the 2017 Harvest Report.

Hopefully it goes up soon.

I'm going to apply for area 27 but that boundry is so close to some of the spots I use to bait/ hunt and from the map they provide it's tough trying to figure out the exact boundry lines.

I'm going to make the assumption that area 28 is the entire leech lake reservation.

If anyone wants to wait to do their lottery stuff, I did receive a response from the MN DNR and they expect to have that 2017 Harvest Report up on the page early next week.

i sent the DNR an email, they walked me thru figuring it out using the page and recreation compass.
